How Gosiger Helps Educate the Next Generation of CNC Machinists
CNC shops across the country are struggling to find capable machine operators and machinists. Meanwhile, industry leaders project that by 2025 there will be a shortage of 875,000 skilled manufacturing professionals.
Gosiger has long believed that students who graduate from trade schools and colleges with serious manufacturing programs are excellent new hires. They already have basic skills, more easily adapt to the company’s standards, and have hands-on CNC machine experience.
What’s sometimes missing, however, is experience with current machine tool technologies. That’s where Gosiger is able to help. The company loans and offers discounted prices on equipment from Okuma, Hardinge and other OEM partners to a number of educational institutions.
A case in point is 50-year-old Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, Oregon. According to the school’s Dean: “This has been a win-win-win-win situation. The College, Gosiger, the students and the manufacturing community all benefit. Not only has Gosiger helped us make the latest high end CNC machining centers, lathes, and screw machines available for our students and instructors, they also provide training on all new equipment.”
